Any possibility of Cherepanov impacting on the Ranger's WJC decision for Grachev ?

My apologies if this should be in another thread.

I was wondering if Cerepanov's death and overall handling by the Russian hockey federation could have contributed to the Rangers not sending Grachev over to the WJC....

My memory could be off but the Russians were difficult about letting Chere come to the US when it seemed a real possibility that he could be on the Ranger's roster.. He seemed to want to come over but would always say the right things regarding his situation there.

It's just speculation on my part that the Rangers may be giving a little pay back to Russia in holding Grachev back. I'm wondering what others thought about this as a possibility...
